Acceding to the worshiping masses, Babe Ruth went for (and frequently launched) home runs, fulfilled frequent photo opportunities and rendered coveted autographs introduced by his familiar “Babe” moniker. Business was business, however, as evidenced by this impressive cut signature display. Executed in black-ink fountain pen on a portion of a check, Ruth has signed “G H Ruth” in an official capacity. The scripting shows (“7”) strength. Framed to 22-1/2 x 17-1/4”, the display is accented by a 9-1/8 x 12-1/8” (visible image area) black-and-white photo of a young Ruth in the Yankee Stadium dugout. Full photo LOA from JSA. This item has a reserve (estimated value: $2000-$2500).
